"Gay Company" By Catherine Scales, illustrations by Moubray Leigh (H.F. and G. Witherby, Ltd, London 1938)

"Jolly Company" would have been safer as a title but the book was published some sixty years ago. A children's story - even though I haven't read it yet - about the adventures of a cat named George and his friends. The pictures have a very attractive, naive style but what really caught my attention was the print quality used (I think it was lithography). They look as though they've just been printed now! Lots of black and white pictures in the book too, but not as strong.
